Great food at very affordable prices. It has a massive menu with both Eastern and Western dishes, which is difficult for a restaurant to manage and do well, but Gekko seems to do while maintaining cheap prices and daily specials. Don't come here if you're looking for glamour, but if you want good food, good selection, good drinks, and cheap... More

Every time im in Chiang Mai I visit Gekko Garden at least once. I keep coming back more for nostalgic reasons then for the food. They offer a very wide variaty of dishes, foreign as well as thai. The food is ok but not great. Prices are very reasonable, they always open late and service is good and fast. I... More

Gekko Garden is a bar and restaurant in the middle of the old walled city of Chiang Mai that is popular with resident expatriates. The night the four of us were there for dinner many of them were sitting on stools at the bar knocking back one beer after another. We ordered a stir fried serpent fish with young celery,... More

Great American and European dishes and for my Thai wife....also excellent Thai dishes. A European friend told me about this place. I've eaten here 4 times this month so far. My wife is Thai and tells me the Thai dishes are very good. So....I found a place, not expensive that we both enjoy. Thai staff speaks English. Win win

This place was so disappointing. The bar was lined with Expats, men only not one female in the place except my wife. These men were unfriendly and rude and in no circumstance would we ever go back there.

Staff of Gekko Garden are kind. Me and my friend ordered beef liver, Pork chop, spring roll and straw berry smoothie. Food and drinks are good. Pork chop is good. Good price, quality and quantity. I wanna visit again! 식당 직원들 친절하고 음식 저렴하고 양 많아요. 음식 메뉴들도 다양하고요. 토요일날 방문해서 pork chop 주문했는데 매우 만족했습니다. Spring roll도 나쁘지 않았어요.... More

Gekko garden has a buffet on Sunday, with a great selection of meats, potato dishes, a variety of vegies and other dishes, There is no shortage of food and variety. The buffet is more Western style food, but they also have Thai dishes on their Menu.

I have been to Gekko Garden 3 times now, but it would be more if I didn't live clear across town. Every day there is a special dish at a reduced price, and they all are delicious. I was there two nights ago for a meeting. Several of those who came had never been to Gekko Garden before. At the... More

Exactly the same since I was last there. Basically good food at cheap prices. Large area, friendly staff (mostly), TVs and wi-fi. Downside are the heavy drinkers and smokers that frequent, but if you're into those, this is the place for you. Plenty of opportunity for conversation. It is still not clean enough, and the furniture is uncomfortable. I've added... More
